The conference aims at presenting an overview of state-of-the art research in artificial intelligence in Belgium and The Netherlands. Submissions of the following three types are invited:
Type A: REGULAR PAPERS
Papers presenting new original work. Submitted papers should not exceed a length of 8 pages. These papers will be reviewed on overall quality and relevance. A-Papers will be accepted for either oral or poster presentation. All accepted papers will be fully published in the proceedings.
Type B: COMPRESSED CONTRIBUTIONS
AI papers that have been accepted after June 1, 2003 for other refereed conferences or journals can be resubmitted and will be accepted as compressed contributions. Authors are invited to submit the officially published version (without page restriction) together with a one or two-page abstract. B-Papers will be accepted for either oral or poster presentation. The abstract of the paper will be published in the proceedings. Note that, as for BNAIC'03 but in departure from previous years, a separate author registration is required for each B-type contribution. Every author may submit at most 1 B-paper of which they are the corresponding author, and only if they do not submit any A-paper as corresponding author.
Type C: DEMONSTRATIONS & APPLICATIONS
Proposals for demonstrations will be evaluated based on submitted demonstration summaries (in English) stating the following: the purpose of the system to be demonstrated, its user groups, the organisation or project for which it is developed, the developers, and the technology used. In addition, the system requirements and the duration (not exceeding 30 minutes) should be mentioned. Especially researchers from industry are encouraged to submit papers presenting their applications and experiences. The maximum size of demonstration summaries is 2 pages.
For all submission types, possible topics of submissions include, but are not limited to:
Submissions should be accompanied by a message stating the submission type (A, B, or C) and an abstract of the paper in plain text. Proper receipt of submissions will be acknowledged by e-mail. The deadline for submissions is June 1, 2004. Submission implies willingness of at least one author to register for BNAIC and present the paper. For each paper, a separate author registration is required. Authors keep the copyright of their submissions.
From this year onwards, the BNAIC Proceedings will carry an ISSN series number, just like journals, magazines and series of technical reports.
Deadline for submissions: June 1, 2004
Notification of acceptance: July 23, 2004
Deadline for camera-ready papers: September 1, 2004
